INFORMATION

VISION STATEMENT FEU Institute of Technology aims to be one of the top five technology educational institutions in the Philippines.

MISSION STATEMENT FEU Institute of Technology is dedicated to provide quality, relevant, innovative and industry-based education producing competent and principled professionals with greater sense of responsibility, social awareness and high competitiveness contributing significantly to the betterment of the society.

CORE VALUES F – Fortitude E – Excellence U – Uprightness

HISTORY The present Far Eastern University (FEU) is an offshoot of the union of the Institute of Accountancy (founded in 1928 by Dr. Nicanor Reyes) and the Far Eastern College (founded in 1919 by Nicanor Maronilla-Seva, Francisco Africa, Pedro Cortez, Salvador Unson, and Vicente Favella) in the early second quarter of the 1900’s. When Dr. Nicanor Reyes, gained the controlling stock on November 5, 1933, he became its first president. Since then, the site of the once humble cigarette factory turned into an educational institution at the corner of Azcarraga (now Claro M. Recto) and M. Lorenzo (now Quezon Boulevard) Streets and has produced luminaries who had distinguished themselves in business, law, education, fine arts, architecture, engineering, nursing and medicine. Dr. Reyes had envisioned a university with the best facilities to offer a well-rounded education, giving emphasis on the promotion of Philippine art and culture. Since its inception, FEU boasts of cultural and historical vestige. Notable are the works of national artists such as Pablo Antonio, Vicente Manansala, and Francisco “Botong” Francisco that grace FEU’s grounds and buildings. Distinguished also were the artistic performances especially in the 50’s and 60’s in the FEU Auditorium, which where dubbed as the “Cultural Center of the Philippines”. For twenty years, it was the venue for major cultural presentations like the operas La Traviata, Il Trovatore and Carmen. Recently, the establishment of the President’s Committee on Culture has brought a cultural rebirth with its twice-a-month presentations of local and international artists. Modern stage productions necessitated the overhauling of the auditorium with state-of-the-art theatre facilities, including a wide screen and a powerful video and computer projector.

INFORMATION

The Early Beginnings of FEU Institute of Technology In 1936, the Commonwealth was two years old and independence was promised a decade hence. The FEU, a private education pioneer, took stock of the emergent nation’s needs. Among its findings was a very pressing need for engineers and technologists to help build the nation. It felt itself challenged and it thus established the Institute of Technology. An increasing demand for trained engineers and technologists remained. With the government’s accelerated economic recovery program, private business establishing more and more factories, and agriculture shifting to mechanization, the demand for trained and skilled personnel was greater than ever. The Institute of Technology helped by filling the country’s need in this respect. In 1936, when it was founded, the Institute of Technology initially offered a complete course in civil engineering. The Institute had since added complete courses in six other major fields of technology: architecture, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, and chemistry. A course in geodetic engineering was also started in 1952. However, in 1971, the Department of Architecture was elevated into the Institute of Architecture and Fine Arts and took over the architecture program; the course in chemistry was transferred to the Institute of Arts and Sciences in 1978. The courses leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in a specific branch of engineering offered by the Institute of Technology were similar in some respects to those of the famed technical institutes and universities in the United States and Europe, such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, Cornell University, and California Polytechnic. They, however, were oriented to suit local conditions and to fill the needs of Philippine technological advancement. The curricula of the Institute of Technology were geared to prepare the students to become highly technical yet practical experts in their specific branch of engineering. To achieve this end, the Institute of Technology had built a strong and well-balanced faculty.

FEU Institute of Technology

Student Handbook 2015 revised edition


It had a formidable teaching force, composed of the country’s esteemed technological educators and scholars, professors skilled and experienced in the basic sciences, trained technicians, and practicing and consulting professional engineers. The Institute of Technology was also continually expanding its facilities so as to provide its faculty and students the most complete and most modern laboratory in the country. It was in line with this policy that FEU built a seven-storey Technology Building in Manila and a building complex on its 46-hectare Quezon City campus.

A New Technology FEU takes pride in its relentless efforts for academic excellence. For this reason, it conducts a constant review of programs of major tertiary courses. After a thorough study of the Technology Program, the administration decided to phase it out in favor of a computer technology program forged with East Asia Computer Center, Inc., which offered degrees in Computer Science in 1992. In July 1991, SM Foundation and IBM Philippines set up Asia Pacific Computer Technology Center (APCTC). Six months later, APCTC collaborated with Far Eastern University (FEU) and Intelligent Wave, Inc. (IWI) and set up a computer school, which was subsequently called East Asia Computer Center. Later, the name was changed to East Asia Institute of Computer Technology (EAICT). Initially, the only degree offered was Bachelor of Science in Computer and Information Science (BSCIS). In 1994, EAICT started to offer the degree of Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCOE). On September 30, 1998, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) noted the change in the name of East Asia Institute of Computer Technology (EAICT) to East Asia College of Information Technology (EACIT). On February 24, 2000, EACIT was identified by CHED as a Center of Development for Excellence (CODE) in Information Technology Education in the National Capital Region. In 2001, EACIT sought the approval of CHED to offer additional courses leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Bachelor of Science in Information Management. Both courses gained full recognition in April 2004.

INFORMATION

Brief History of the New College of Engineering Engineering was under the Institute of Technology as one of the principal programs of FEU until the Board of Directors decided to close the Institute of Technology by not accepting freshmen in 1991. Although it still had an enrolment of over 4,000 students, the Institute of Technology found itself caught in a squeeze between the government’s cap on tuition fee increases and the rising costs of providing quality education in engineering. Rather than allow a drop in quality standards, FEU finally chose to close down the Institute in 1996. Being one of the country’s finest universities, FEU worked to restore the scope of its academic offerings. In 2001, the FEU administration decided to reopen and rehabilitate the defunct technology program. This paved the way to the re-opening of the College of Engineering that prides itself with a carefully designed curriculum, high quality instruction and state-of-the-art laboratory and building facilities. The College of Engineering offered Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE), Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE), Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering (BSECE) and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) system. A regular student is expected to finish any of the programs in four (4) years and one (1) term. The additional one term consists of three and a half months industry immersion. The College of Engineering received its Government Recognitions from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on April 12, 2004 to conduct and operate the four programs.

The Power of Two In 2002, FEU acquired the controlling stock of EACIT and gained full control of the College. In 2003, the FEU Administration took a big step in merging the College of Engineering and East Asia College of Information Technology. The combined resources and efforts of both Colleges resulted in the merged FEU – East Asia College (FEU—EAC) with the re-organized vision and mission. In 2014, FEU – East Asia College is re-named back to its roots as FEU Institute of Technology, also known as FEU Tech.

INFORMATION

THE INSTITUTE SEAL The outer ellipse is consistent with the seal of the other schools in the FEU Group. The images in the inner ellipse are symbolic of what the Institute represents, with its four components: a book, a whirlwind, a gear, and a tongue of digital fire. The book (or “muse”) acts not only as the base of the structure but also as the agent of knowledge and inspiration. From the pages of the book, a mighty whirlwind forms and spins boldly outward, disseminating knowledge in all directions, “ascending” toward the highest of “heavens,” and feeding the fire of passion for “invention,” which is represented by engineering (the gear) and information technology (the pixelated tongue of fire).

THE iTAMARAW ICON The iTamaraw is an adaptation of FEU’s icon, the tamaraw. The right half follows the classical tamaraw; the left half represents a ‘modernized’ high-tech tamaraw. 1. 2. 3. 4.

The left horn, shaped as an antenna or tower, symbolizes an industrial structure. The lines on face symbolize innovation; they represent circuitry associated with both computer and engineering courses. The glowing red eye symbolizes power or flow of electricity inside a computer. The colors green and gold gradient represent the colors of the College; black represents strength and determination

CHED regional Directors Heads of Private Schools, Colleges and Universities Presidents of State Colleges and Universities

1. The fundamental law of the land requires the state through its instrumentalities, in particular the educational agencies, to promote the physical, intellectual and social well-being of the youth, the students. They are encouraged to go to schools of all levels to utilize their God-given talents for self-development and, collectively, for nation building. They are encouraged further to join all kinds of organizations that foster camaraderie and instill brotherhood. 2. Historically, fraternities were founded to promote brotherhood and camaraderie among groups of people, including students in colleges and universities, Fraternities and other student organizations must serve to forge not only brotherhood as the ultimate bonding of all men and women inside and outside the confines of universities, but must exist to preserve the value of human life. Their talents and energies must be channeled and utilized for collective development. 3. Recent events involving fraternities tend to erode the moral values inculcated by parents and the educational institutions. Students dedication the study, respect for authority, observance of the rules and regulations of educational institutions are ignored. Existing laws and other administrative issuance seem not enough to deter some students to inflict physical and mental injuries on others and, in so many instances, cause the loss of life of students. 4. In order to have an atmosphere of brotherhood among fraternities and other student organizations, all educational institutions of higher learning are encouraged to promote programs and projects that will produce responsible students and will instill the value of human life for a productive future. The following preventive measures

are therefore suggested:
